Thank you very much to everyone who attended our Drink Pink! Rosé virtual tasting event tonight!
It’s now time to get our next virtual tasting in the diary:
New #TWSTaste virtual wine tasting: the ‘past it’ bottle experiment, Thursday 25th June, 8pm-9pm
Like some of our previous tastings, we’re asking you to raid your wine rack to see what you’ve already got at home, and join together to taste along live next Thursday.
The clue is in the name - we’ll be trying wines which are past their recommended drink dates. We’ll be looking to see whether the wines really are past their best, or whether we’ll be pleasantly surprised!
This is an opportunity to try those wines that might otherwise go down the sink - who knows what discoveries we’ll make! Anything that you want to try is welcome, as are you!
If you haven’t got any wines that you think are past their best and want to open something else and taste along, that’s fine too. Bring along a bottle and join in anyway - you might feel very pleased in comparison by the end of the evening!
To drink, or not to drink…
If you’re wondering whether to pull the cork or not, have a read of our Fine Wine Manager’s guide on the meaning of drinking windows:
Here’s how to take part:
- Have a look to see if you have any wines that are past their best at home.
- Reply to this topic saying what wine you’ve got - and if you’ve got more than one option, do share notes with your fellow members here and get advice about which bottle to open (feel free to open more than one if you like…).
- Log in to the Community just before 8pm on Thursday 25th June - there’ll be a topic called ‘LIVE #TWSTaste: the ‘past it’ bottle experiment’ where we’ll host the live event. We’ll all say which bottles we’re opening/share photos of the bottles, and then we’ll taste along together and compare notes, just like we do for a normal #TWSTaste event.
If you’re new to The Community and need help with how to use the forum for the tasting, have a read of our guide ‘How To’ - Take part in our virtual #TWSTaste events’
Who’s joining us?
- I’ll be there!
- I don’t have any wines past their best, but I’ll join anyway.
We’re very excited about this tasting and we hope you can join us!
